Our investment strategy is embedded in our name - Growth By Acquisition “GBA”.
Our primary objective is to provide an accelerated capital growth to our shareholders & solid and consistent returns to our investment partners. We do this via a two-fold strategy; firstly our primary focus is always on aggressively growing the revenue base of our anchor investments (the first investment in a new sector, geography or vertical), secondly we aim to achieve further growth by scanning for viable acquisitions to add to the anchor.
The vision is to grow a diversified portfolio of assets in key sectors of the economy where the underlying fundamentals support growth prospects. We are risk-averse and always take a longer-term view aiming for long-term cash generation rather than short-term returns.
We look to invest in businesses that are:
Mature with a track record (10 years + trading history)
Profitable (£2m - £10m EBITDA ideally unless a bolt-on acquisition)
Stable and predictable in revenue generation (£20m + revenue unless a bolt-on acquisition)
Managed well & not reliant on single individuals
Unique & niche within their operating space
